The Flyers gave away toasters, blenders, refrigerators, and other assorted prizes on fan appreciation night at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday. As an added bonus, they gave their fans their first victory over the New York Islanders this season. In a wild finish that saw three goals scored in the final 1 minute, 44 seconds, Brayden Schenn won it by firing a shot from above the left circle that somehow beat goalie Jaroslav Halak with 2.1 seconds left, giving the Flyers a crazy 5-4 win over the dazed Isles.

FIGURE THIS one out: Brayden Schenn has accumulated nearly 15 percent of his entire season's point total in the last three games. In the penultimate week of a non-playoff season. Add his recent performance to the list of perplexing items about this Flyers team, up there with the disparaging road record (10-20-11), Steve Mason's win total (17) despite a franchise-record save percentage (.929), and Craig Berube's depth charts. Schenn, 23, tied for the league lead in scoring last week with six points - three goals and three assists - in the Flyers' three games (2-0-1)

After they play their final three games this week and then watch the playoffs on TV, the sad reality will hit the Flyers: They wasted a career season by goalie Steve Mason - despite what a certain NBC "analyst" says about him. Mason, who turns 27 next month and believes he has not yet reached his prime, has finally given the Flyers an elite goaltender. But despite his being among the NHL's leaders in save percentage and goals-against average, the team will miss the playoffs for the second time in three years.

THE FIRE didn't need to be stoked. As the seconds ticked off the clock on the Flyers' win in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, the two teams were jawing and Ryan White remembered what he heard. "They were chirping," White said. "Just after the game, saying that they're going to the playoffs . . . saying that we're going to be done in a week. Of course we are. They had a couple stumbles this week. It was nice to put another 'L' in their cup. " For the Flyers, yesterday was their Stanley Cup playoffs.

THE VIDEO tribute began to roll during the final television timeout yesterday and as soon as Paul Devorski's name flashed on the big screen, boos rained down from all corners of Wells Fargo Center. Devorski was just glad the video didn't play earlier in the third period with fans still hot and bothered after Jake Voracek's 10-minute misconduct. "They said it was coming and they were going to do it right at the start of the third," Devorski said. "The fans were kind of restless right then, so they held off until near the end. It worked out pretty good.

With four minutes remaining in the Flyers' final game against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins during another unfulfilled season, the Wells Fargo Center crowd started chants of "You can't beat us!" There has been little for Flyers fans to cheer about during the last month, but they found a worthy one Sunday. Even though the Flyers will finish the season this week with one of the NHL's worst records, they will at least have an undefeated mark against the Penguins. The Flyers finalized the four-game season sweep with a 4-1 victory in an Easter Sunday matinee that weakened Pittsburgh's postseason push.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Being the MVP or the top defenseman on this year's Flyers is rather hollow because the team will miss the playoffs for the second time in three years. The best defenseman - on a team that doesn't have a true top-pair player - should be Nick Schultz, Michael Del Zotto, or Mark Streit. Schultz emerged after signing as the No. 7 blueliner in July, Del Zotto displayed some eye-popping offense after being an emergency signing in August, and Streit adroitly ran one of the league's best power plays.

RALEIGH, N.C. - It seemed fitting that a small, somewhat lethargic crowd attended the Flyers' final road game of the season Saturday afternoon. The Flyers, after all, came up small - and played too much listless hockey - in their 41 road games. They dropped a 3-2 decision to Carolina in a shootout at PNC Arena and finished with a 10-20-11 road record. You have to go back to 1971-72 (7-25-7) to find a season in which the Flyers finished with fewer road victories. Chris Terry scored what proved to be the game-winner in the shootout.

The Flyers will conclude their mostly disastrous road schedule when they face the scuffling Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon in Raleigh, N.C. A 10-20-10 road record is the chief reason the Flyers will miss the Stanley Cup playoffs for just the third time in the last 20 seasons. They will finish with their worst road record since 1991-92 (10-26-4). Excluding lockout-shortened seasons, you have to go back to 1971-72 (7-25-7) for a year in which the Flyers had fewer road victories.

ONE YEAR AGO, Michael Del Zotto began the final week of the season on another non-playoff team in Nashville - and he wasn't even given the chance to play out the string. He was a healthy scratch in four of the Predators' final five games. The Flyers were eliminated from contention last week, yet this feels entirely different. It feels like home. Based on the way December played out for Del Zotto, he wasn't entirely convinced this would be the case. "I wasn't happy. It was no secret," the defenseman said.
